Even Tedd assumes incorrectly sometimes, and let's be fair, here:
SQUIRREL POWER wasn't THAT big a leap.
My intent is for it to not at all be required reading, but there is an EGSNP storyline, Jestful Statement, that I'm going to treat as canon, and panel two references a moment from that in which Grace thinks to herself that she's had Tedd check, like, three times to make sure she's not draining other people's energy.
I made things a bit awkward for myself by having Tedd fall back on the sofa in the previous page, but I REALLY wanted Tedd to do that, so... Slightly awkward panel two layout is awkward.
I don't think it's THAT confusing, however, and I do like it aside from dialogue order.
(If it was THAT confusing, my apologies.)
